Only then did she realize how lovely the evening scenery was. The sea of city lights seems to outshine the crystal-like brilliance of the stars above. There are also the hustles and bustles down below that make her sigh with a sense of yearning. As always, the outside world appears more enjoyable in her eyes - much more than the lavish setting of the dining hall she's currently in.

'What if the orphanage is no longer there, though? I don't have any other home. Where else would I go once I left...?' she brooded quietly before suddenly stiffening at what she just thought.
'No longer there...? That can't be. What am I thinking? Why do I sound like... like it's indeed...'

"Lookie here, Aunty! I've got a flower for you!"
